The aim of this research project is to analyze from an anthropological perspective the emergence of a set of public policies for LGBT persons deprived from freedom. The central locus of the research will be male units of Sao Paulo's penitentiary system and the CASA Foundation. The objective is to understand, on the one hand, the ways in which these various policies define the LGBT population, the demands that led to their development (keeping in sight broader frame of human rights in Brazil) and the representations mobilized by the actors involved in their implementation. On the other hand, the trajectories of the subjects aimed by these policies will be considered, noting the identification and differentiation processes involved in these dynamics. (AU)
